had a wonderful day out today. Hired an R22 from Shoreham, and flew along the south coast to a gorgeous little hotel on the Isle of Wight, called Farringford Hotel.

It has a golf course attached, lovelly gardens, and great facilities.

They don't charge landing fees, and the food is wonderful too. The staff don't look bad either Smile

The trip took us south of Goodwood, to photograph a friend's house at Walberton, then over the disused airfield at Thorney Island. Then out over the Solent and past the three old world war two forts there, including No Man's Land Fort, which is now a hotel and function suite, recently featured in Helicopter Life Magazine, with it's two helipads on top. I fully intend to visit this place soon, but I can't find a bloody phone number anywhere for them!!!

Then we flew over the coast of the Isle of Wight, and inland, over Parkhurst Prison (almost) and onto our final destination at Totland, the Farringford Hotel.

As we approached into wind, we had to pass over the sheer cliffs at 500ft and into our very confined area.

Had a great meal and a few drinks, and then back off to Shoreham, crossing over to Milford on Sea first, then over the Navy maintenance yards at Portsmouth, and over Little Hamton, back to Shoreham.

This is a trip I will definitely be doing again with other friends, and is well recommended. 1.4 on the datcon, but it could be done in less if you keep 90kias.

Enjoy the photos:
